A very good film bringing the Irish famine back to life on the screen . It really highlighted how the British really meant to exterminate the Irish back then. If your British I recommend you look at this film showing how the British Empire nearly killed the Irish through hunger and destruction of their homes . Very well acted and disturbing but with some whither well.
